Another important consideration is that there are no federal laws governing surrogacy. Instead, each state has its own laws that determine how and if surrogacy may be performed in that state.
Some states, like California, have lenient surrogacy laws that make it easy to perform a cycle safely. In these lenient states, surrogacy contracts are honored, and there are protections in place for both the surrogate and intended parents.
Other states, however, have laws that explicitly prohibit surrogacy, or have stipulations in place that make it difficult to perform this process safely for all involved. For this reason, people living in certain states may not be good candidates.
It is also important to recognize that these surrogate requirements were created to comply with ASRM guidelines, the IVF doctor,s and attorneys that we work with. If you have questions or would like more information, please contact us directly at (760) 438-2265.
